Traffic was snarled on Route 128 North Friday afternoon after a rollover led to a multi-vehicle accident. Units at the scene confirmed five vehicles were involved in the crash -- one of them was a tractor-trailer.
The accident was first reported at approximately 12:10 p.m. just before the split between Route 128 North and I-95 North, about a quarter-mile down from Centennial Drive.
First responders to the scene said no one was trapped in any of the vehicles -- two of them were on their sides -- and there appeared to be only one serious injury with some minor injuries to several others.
Peabody Engine 5 and EMS responded to the scene.
Two lanes of traffic were blocked while the vehicles were removed and the scene was clear with traffic flowing normally again by 1 p.m.
